    Incredibly appropriate for this weekend as it marks the retirement of the most well know voice in SEC Football.
    Larry Munson, Voice of the Dawgs for over 35 years announced his retirement, effective immediately. Apparently, Munson had a couple of doctors visits during the past two weeks when the Dawgs were on the road (because of his age-Larry hasn't been calling road games) and decided it was time to hang it up. article: UGA's legendary Munson announces retirement |

    Some good you-tubery of classic Munson: (GatorUbet - I won't subject to the 81 call):

    Well, two days later my two buddies and I met these five gals who were Canadian telephone oeprators vacationing in Barbados, so if Linday's run had anything to do with the timing of that, then I should have. :banger:

    Richt on travel, Jax, Cox, and more | UGA Sports


    And I am going to overcome the mental advantage the Gators have over us
    by telling my team that it is unfair and "it’s hotter for us, it’s cooler for them"
    (WTF?? we use the shady side of the stadium during the game?) and the flight
    from Athens is an extra hour compared to driving from Gaiesville, and MOMMY!!

    I'm sure somebody on an SEC board will do a weather study in order to post average game-day temperatures in Athens, Ga., Gainesville, Fl., and Jacksonville in order to point out the foolishness of that statement based on actual statistics. I'd be interested in seeing that, but I'm not going to bother to make the comparison myself.

    While enjoying my coffee this morning - I came across a decent read at the Georgia Sports blog

    Georgia Sports Blog: The Relative Awfulness of the Oklahoma State Defense

    Basically it details that Okie State's defense last year wasn't acutally bad - they just had the unfortunate luck of playing some of the top offenses in the country.

    So why is this important? Well according to the blog - the Cowpokes have hired former OSU coordinator Bill Young to coach their defense. He spent quite a bit of time in Columbus and he feels confident in his crew (despite only returning 6 starters). Any BP'ers have any thoughts on Coach Young? Clearly the teams had talent back then - but is he a coach that will adapt to the players he has or will he try to "recreate the wheel" and stick what he's got into the system he knows best?


    (Coach Young spent last season with the Caines)

    From from 1971-89 Florida was 4-15 in the Cocktail Party. I saw most of them in person, including the 44-0 "Hushell Wawka" game, and the Lindsey Scott heart dagger, and even the 1984 win that took a little bit of the sting out...a very little bit. Last time we took down the goal posts in Jax.

    I can die content now, having owned the last two decades. But - as this has always been a streaky deal, the leg humpers are statistically due for a run of their own. :sad:

    Was it cooler in Jacksonville back then? How is this possible?

  14. He played a lot of zone last year with Miami. I don't know whether that had to do with the number of young players they had or if that is the scheme he prefers. He did well with Kansas two years ago.

    Funnily enough, he replaces former Buckeye coach Tim Beckman who left to become the head coach at Toledo.

    Richt looks done at Georgia

    For the first time in 15 years, Georgia is 0-2, a fact that might finally bite their head coach -- who seems to have been on the hot seat for well over a year now. Mark Richt looks done at Georgia. There's just little hope he survives a 0-2 start. He'd have to beat Florida. Of Georgia's nine other games, he'd have to go 8-1. That combo just seems nearly impossible at this point for a coach that's 14-14 in his last 28 games. More alarming is Richt's horrid 6-9 mark in his last 15 contests. Two of those wins were over Louisiana-Lafayette and Idaho State. So, really, Richt is 4-9 in his last 13 games against teams with a pulse. That's pathetic.
